Hi, I'm...reintroducing myself!

I'm Fiona, I'm from a small, very strange town in the middle of rural New Zealand. We've been on the news twice this year, the first in August because we got hit with hurricane-force winds and people had no power for three days, the second time was for a train derailment. Life is fun, anyway! I'm into my last year at high school, actually, my last three days at high school, I graduate on the 12th of November, exams finish the 29th and it's terrifying! My life currently revolves around pretending to study and my increasingly collection of animals, now totalling two horses, two slightly feral Highland heifers, two dogs, four cats and a motley collection of roosters and hens.

Ah..I've been a GG fan for years, I lost count a little while ago, but I think it started in season 3. Thankfully, my mum is also obsessed with it, so there's been quite a few Gilmore Girls marathons. Uh..other show tastes include pretty much anything, but currently, The X-Files (for Mulder and Scully), Bones and Criminal Minds. And M*A*S*H. I adore books and my collection seems to be expanding faster than my collection of bookcases so I'm competing for floor space with it. I think that's about it?

Good lord, I am so incredibly bored right now.

I just looked at my room destruction as proof of this. There is the remains of four TV show DVDs spread around the room, three seasons of Gilmore Girls, one of House, one of Grey's Anatomy and finally, the first season of Bones. There is a half-read book about evolution, a fork, two knives and four coffee cups on my bedside table (along with the usual stuff) then Moby Dick, another fork, a nearly finished copy of Jane Eyre, Of Mice and Men and a book of quotations on my bed.


thats funny i dont think ive met u my name is candy

Hey, I'm Fiona, I'm always on here on funny times because I'm from NZ so we're GMT+12. I also have forks in my bed. And Moby-Dick. Oh the dirty jokes that could come from that.

Pie hangover, mass consumption of pie during physics (very sanitary, I know) then soccer training led me to me nauseous for a day and a half.

Colds do suck, although it's heading into winter down here. I think my current state is caused by MASSIVE fluctuations in the weather. The Tuesday before last, my mate and I took my horse out to the beach and I went for a dip, in my clothes because it was 23C/73Fand humid. By that Saturday, it was windchill of -2C/28F. The weather fluctuated between 1C/33F and 20C/68F the other day. NZ weather is notoriously bad (subtropics + the roaring forties + mountain affected marine climate) but this is pretty damn confusing! The other day I was driving into town and faced north, there was this INCREDIBLE black cloud coming so I quickly pulled off and it poured. I couldn't see anything, when it finally cleared, the carpark I was going to was suddenly flooding.

The most impressive weather change I've ever felt was one day in February a couple of years ago. At 3pm, it was 99% humidity and 36C/97F. In the next half an hour, the temperature dropped by around 15C/59F degrees simply because the breeze changed (northerly to westerly). It was an absolutely insane feeling!

I wanna move somewhere where the weather is stable and you can actually predict it, rather than seeing clouds and running for cover.

Sarcasm is good fun, although it's totally lost on some people, so you end up having to explain yourself...again.

Three bookshelves sound good, we have a three person house which is relatively large so we can cram more bookcases and shelves in. In our entranceway is a floor to ceiling bookcase with every National Geographic since 1959, it's this solid wall of yellow. The annoying thing is that we live on a faultline, so to be safe, the house needs to be quake proofed, all the bookcases are screwed to the walls since the Gissy earthquake (M6.Cool which demolished parts of the Gisborne CBD on the east coast and caused "lesser damage" over where I live on the west coast...I didn't notice a thing, I was watching Criminal Minds. There was a quake last night which apparently I also didn't feel  :Smiley

Rugby games are fun, especially when the crowd really gets up and starts singing. There's a few NZ songs which are absolute stadium anthems, so everyone climbs up and blasts them out, the most impressive is probably "Why Does Love Do This To Me?" by the Exponents, they always play it at the end of sports games as it hypes people up.

I can see why you like rugby, it's all blood and gore and males smacking other males into the ground. It is sort of gruesome but it's so part of a culture down here that I'm utterly used to it, I've always grown up with rugby dominating the headlines. I did watch the Superbowl once and couldn't understand gridiron at all, although I have no trouble bouncing between the different forms of rugby (rugby union, rugby league, rugby sevens and touch rugby).

The drinking by 11am thing is very funny as people get systematically arrested throughout the day for misbehaving. I always remember once cricket match I went to when a lady got on the big screen and flashed the 30,000 people in the crowd. A later shot showed her getting arrested.

And the real reason everyone goes to the All Blacks games? The haka. I've been watching rugby for years and it still scares me. I remember once a Maori performance group came to my primary school and did the haka, lots of kids were so scared, they started crying.

You'll have to fight for space with the four cats and two dogs who think it's already their domain. Just to make my place seem all the more appealing, I have all 7 seasons of GG as well as four TVs and two DVD players (there's only two of us normally too, my Mum and I, my sister usually lives in the city).

I just love the view, it's very serene, especially at dawn and dusk when all the birds come out. I love going down to the beach in wild weather and going for a run, I took one of the dogs out once when it was insanely windy (ie we had to run with the wind coz you couldn't run against it) and it was incredible.

The other reason I love where my house is, it has space for...



And...

The two reasons I adore where I live...





It's about a 15 minute drive from the coast to the mountains.

Oh yes! There's about 30,000 people in my district but it's predominantly rural. We actually have a fair once a year where people dress up like medieval characters and joust, which is hysterical fun to go to actually.

Ah my sordid relationship with a guy 5 years my senior, the whole town was discussing it for weeks, much to my humiliation, I kept yelling at people
11  Gilmore Girls / General Discussion / Re: For the Younger Fans- The Kiddies; The Kids; The Future. on: May 10, 2008, 08:47:04 pm
Trust me, I know. I live in a small town and apparently everyone had an opinion, I had more than one temper tantrum where I told people to butt out. Thankfully my beau was slightly more level-headed than I am and just took it in his stride. We did keep it secret for a couple of weeks before we got busted by a group of guys from my class at school, the humiliation was incredible, I've almost lived it down, nearly five years on!
12  Gilmore Girls / General Discussion / Re: For the Younger Fans- The Kiddies; The Kids; The Future. on: May 10, 2008, 08:36:22 pm
Me neither. But I usually do have good advice about guys. Kinda weird, isn't it.
Olivia- Yeah. This place is like my 2nd family. No one here judgs me, they're all nice, and all supportive.
My ankle hurts. Should I take ibuprofen? Because my mom's asleep, so I don't want to ask her. lol.


I prefer paracetamol to ibuprofen personally, it tastes better!

Where is life without embarrassing PJs? I have these giant snuggly Snoopy ones, they make me smile.

My relationship life is very boring, I had my first boyfriend when I was 13, he was 18 and was in my tutor group at school, he was gorgeous, an absolutely beautiful person, he remembered anniversaries and brought me cards and flowers and chocolate, we split amicably when he moved away for uni. That has been my one serious relationship so far, unless you count a guy who developed a crush on me once, he wore a kilt to school, enough said.

The Tshirt won't change anything. I had a tshirt that said don't bug me. So what did they do? Throw grapes at me. lol. Good idea though.
Olivia- I really don't want to live with it though. Well, I at least have you guys. I agree with the song The Outside.
Rory- What happened?


I have more ideas for t-shirts but I'm not sure how age appropriate they are. If people are bugging you, create yourself a corner, back on two walls and a big glare at anyone who attempts to break your corner.

I just remember, I have PJ pants with "Don't Bug me" on them, they have pictures of ladybirds on them....and I cannot believe I just admitted that on a public forum.

My theme song is "Hot Blooded" by Foreigner because it always makes me smile, "Bab O'Riley" by The Who and "Manic Monday" by the Bangles as well as "Monster" by The Automatic. I have a really perverse taste in music
